You are on this mailing list because you either signed up at a concert or at the FREYjA website. I know many of you have not heard from me for some time, if ever! It's been a challenging time for us all. For everyone...nurses teachers and artists too. As an artist myself, my mission has always been to inspire and to spread hope for peace and conciliation person to person, family to family, neighbour to neighbour, nation to nation, in any way I can. Through words and music.
Now more than ever we creatives need to do this.
I am thrilled to report, that despite the limitations and at times agonising confinement I have managed to complete two books, one album and my children's musical.
The album is particularly close to my heart. We have recorded it between London and Cambridge and Spain and Hertfordshire and Australia! Paul Robinson (Nina Simone for 20 years, Van Morrison and more) has produced it and provided his unique drumming style...that rare class and sensitivity which I have been honoured to work with for 12 years now is finally down on The Furnace Recordings. We have unmixed versions of ten of the fifteen songs now but have come to a pause since we are all out of work now and need to run a Crowdfunding Campaign to keep going. Furnace Recordings 2021
is up on Soundcloud
That's where you will come in soon. Which is why I am checking in. And asking you to 'love' 'follow' 'support' us on twitter, insta, facebook and look out for the soon to come email. If you wish to unsubscribe however, then please do so now. Sorry to see you go.

Song For The Siren. Newest Song with Paul Robinson. Listen at SoundCloud or the FREYjA Facebook page! What a six months it’s been. Right? Tough on everyone, that’s for sure, but us creatives we keep on keeping on. As the Nichiren Buddhists say: “Turn poison into medicine.”
For those of you wondering what I’ve been doing. I’ve finally finished one of my manuscripts. Yes! A novel I have been working on for over six years. Draft One of Tilting The Doll is completed.
What’s more, my new (mostly remotely) recorded album, The Furnace Recordings, is now eight songs in. Song For The Siren is my newest song. Producer/ Drummer Paul Robinson never ceases to astound me. He is a master at creating spellbinding worlds around a song. No doubt, this is just one of the many reasons Nina Simone loved working with him. I am honoured, as ever.
Humbled too by Luca Boscagin, who laid down the most perfect, emotive guitar tracks from his home studio.
The photo should link you to soundcloud where you can leave comments about the song. Let us know which artists it reminds you of. Emotions it evokes. Genres you feel it falls within. A song such as this will be pitched to several Licensing Companies around the world, in the hope that it will be exploited/placed in a series/ film/ ad. All your feedback is helpful for us to know where to aim it in our submissions to publishers etc.
More very soon. The muse is back. Stay creative, people. Dig deep and fill your lives with love, poetry and music. FREYjA
